EDUCATION

Tertiary studies in engineering, drawing, and cartography, have developed Robyn’s eye for accuracy and detail. She has concentrated on portraits for the 15 years, and her first major commission in 2000 was to paint Lucy Osbourne, the first Lady Superintendent of Sydney Hospital c.1868.

With an art career spanning over 30 years Robyn Ross has gathered a wealth of experience with different styles and mediums. Her other commissioned works have included large murals for Darling Harbour Expos, sculpture and ceramics for the ANA Hotel. Along with portraits she enjoys painting still life and over the years has had commissions from the UK for a series of these. Robyn has served as President and as Vice President on the committee of Portrait Artists Australia, and is a member of the Portrait Society of America.

Robyn has raised record sums through the sales of her work for the children’s charity Jeans for Genes, and The Northcott Society’s Charity Art Auction.
